the past seven weeks. 46 disapprove. numbers worse when it comes to the handling of the economy. 44% back the president. 52% do not. dan lothian joins us from the white house. so the polls certainly can't help the president's cause, especially without republicans. >> it certainly shows there is a lot of frustration out there, a lot of concern for americans when it comes to the president dealing with debt and deficit. we expect republica will shine a big spotlight on that raising some of the same concerns and criticisms and you you heard some of that yesterday from representative paul ryan, the chairman of the house budget committee as he was rolling out his own budget that seeks to balance the budget over the next decade by doing away with a locality of health care reform, by streamlining the federal tax code. but president obama in an interview with abc news, says when it comes to the timeline, it's not what he has in mind. >> my goal is not to chase a balanced budget just for the sake of balance. my goal is how do we grow the economy, put people back to work, and if we do that, we're go
into the economy, until they see things change substantially. and what they're talking about in terms of substantial change is the unemployment rate going down to 6.5%. the federal reserve, they have regular meetings, they give regular statements on what they're going to do. today was one of those regular meetings that was scheduled. we were not expecting a change in rates. obviously with rates as low as they are, the only option will to be raise rates and you don't typically raise rates, wolf, unless you're trying to slow an economy down. if you raise rates, it makes it harder, more expensive for people to borrow money. they spend less. they borrow less. we're not at that point right now. so rates are staying exactly where they were, the federal reserve will continue to print and pump $85 billion into the economy. the way they do that, wolf, is they buy bonds back from banks, treasuries and mortgage-backed securities that gives banks more money to lend to businesses, and individuals for their mortgages or for their business expansion, and that puts more money into the economy. they'r
the world has changed in the last ten years. the global economy is real. we don't live in a national economy anymore. everything you buy, everything you sell, everything you touch, it's all impacted by things that are happening halfway around the world. the information age is real that's made our lives easier. it's allowed you right now to take pictures with your phones and tweet every word i say for or against me. it's changed the world. and it's made our life easier. it's also changed our economy. you go into a grocery store today and you will find machines doing the jobs that people once used to do. you find a day in many businesses that one person because of automation can do the work five people used to do. it's the work around us that's changed. and this has had an impact on our people. on our hard working people. many have seen jobs wiped out. jobs they've been doing for 20 years disappeared overnight. many of them -- and many of them do things the right way. for example, they pay their mortgages on time. and now when the housing bubble came they were stuck with a bill for bailing out

will harm, not help our economy. that's why i'm reaching out to republicans and democrats to come together around a balanced approach, a smart, phased in approach to deficit reduction, that includes smart spending cuts and entitlement reforms and new revenue and that won't hurt our middle class or slow economic growth. and if we do that, then we can move beyond governing from crisis to crisis to crisis and we keep our focus on policies that actually create jobs and grow our economy and move forward to face all the other challenges we face from fixing our broken immigration system, to educating our kids, to keeping them safe from gun violence. and few pieces of business are more important for us than getting our energy future right. so here at argon, and other labs around the country, scientists are working on getting us where we need to get ten years from now, 20 years from now. today, what most americans feel first when it comes to energy prices or energy issues are prices that they pay at the pump. and over the past few weeks, we saw, we went through another spike in gas prices, people a
